Possible helpful info for skinners in SL
Return to board index
This is the first time I am making a post in the forums here at Wowhead so I'm sorry if this is not the right format or location for this kind of information. I also understand that the beta is subject to change at any point.
Something that recently piqued my interest in the beta was the acquisition of leather materials for making the legendary shells.
With Legion and BFA getting more materials from skinning/herbs/mining came from the Star system but now that it was gone... how can you improve your drops? The answer to that was the skill level.
in shadowlands, skinning will go from 1 - 150. Once you reach 150 you will get much more Desolate leather, Desolate Hide scraps, and other materials. Now to push things a little further... you can have a +10 skinning dagger in your bags bring you up to 160 skill. At this point, you begin to acquire Heavy Desolate Leather and Heavy desolate Hide (The more rare stuff).
If this was not enough for you... then consider when the Worgen racial is taken into account (+15) or you can always use the Dagger from UBRS with (+10) or the classic glove enchant (+5). In total as a Worgen with skinning your skill can cap out at 165+25(190)
At around 180 or 190 skill is when your results begin to pay off... Heavy Desolate Hide begins to drop at almost double their previous rate and Heavy desolate leather begins to drop x2 more often than not.
Sorry for this giant wall of text! Simply just wanted to put out some information that I have gathered.
